Ok, got it
I am sad to inform you that ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020, the scientific congress of the European Association for Preventive Cardiology scheduled for 2-4 April in Malaga, is cancelled.
The ESC and EAPC leadership have been following closely the rapid spread of COVID-19 and its impact. Increasingly severe measures are being put in place to limit the spread of the virus as physicians and hospitals deal with a pandemic.
More than 50% of our congress faculty has informed us that they will be unable to attend – and that number will only grow. With so many of you on the front lines of the current health crisis, we know you have other priorities and we offer our support and solidarity to all of you.
As I write this message, it is unclear what additional measures the Spanish Government will impose on the city of Malaga. Events of more than 1,000 are already banned in Madrid, parts of the Basque country and La Rioja.
Given our inability to assure a faculty presence, coupled with more elaborate restrictions in Spain, and of course the health of our faculty, delegates and staff, cancelling our congress is the only responsible course of action.
We are now discussing how we will move forward. We will keep you updated as information becomes available.

On behalf of the EAPC Executive Board and the Congress Chair, Prof. Ana Abreu, thank you for your understanding and steadfast support.
Paul DendaleEAPC President 2018 - 2020
Keep some time in your agenda to visit the exhibition and include Industry Sponsored Sessions on your agenda for the most recent information on the latest products, therapies & research from our industry partners.
Delegates are cordially invited to attend a series of Satellite Symposia included in the scientific programme of the congress. These sessions will offer pertinent data on the latest scientific information and developments from the industry.
More details on the programmes on the Scientific Programme & Planner and the Mobile App (available early March).
The exhibition is an integral part of the congress. The exhibition provides delegates with the opportunity to exchange with key industry experts on critical areas of development and research in cardiovascular products and therapies. The exhibition will be a central hub for scientific discussion and exchange during the congress.
Company & product descriptions will be available in the Mobile App early March.
Our industry partners are at the very heart of patient care, providing you with the necessary data on products and resources to facilitate your daily practice and improve patient outcomes. The very latest cardiovascular developments will be discussed and debated during the Congress.
